Live from the Finger Lakes!


Starts July 10 at 7 p.m. EST

BVT’s New Works Initiative continues with a July series of online readings of new plays. First up:

Strong by Dominic Orlando.  In this gritty and suspenseful crime drama, a private detective (Mark Poppleton) and an NYPD detective (Kate Reynolds) each pursue a serial child murderer–but each harbors a secret that could prove lethal. Jim Ditmars and Suzi Takahashi round out the cast. Chris J. Handley directs. This event will go live at 7 p.m. EST on July 10 and the link will remain live for 2 weeks.

Playwright Dominic Orlando is based in Los Angeles.  He was a writer for Seasons 1 & 2 of both The OA and MindHunter (Netflix) and is currently writing for Them and Outer Range (Amazon Prime).  At BVT, Dominic wrote Nevermore (2006) and directed nine shows, including The Big Bang (2013), A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to The Forum (2012), and What The Butler Saw (2014). As a playwright Dominic has worked with theatres across the country including The Guthrie, Actors Theatre of Louisville (Humana), Berkeley Rep,TimeLine, HERE Arts Center and New YorkTheatre Workshop.

This online event is free to BVT’s 2020 summer subscribers and ticket holders (a link and password will be emailed). Others may purchase tickets for $10 through our etix website soon.
